Lebedev Targets Clash With The Green vs Tarver Winner

By Chris LaBate

THe WBO's #1 ranked cruiserweight, Denis Lebedev (22-1, 17KOs), is looking for another big title opportunity. On Saturday in Moscow, Russia, the heavy-handed Lebedev pulled off another brutal knockout with a tenth round stoppage of former four division champion Roy Jones Jr. After the fight was over, Lebedev called out the winner of the upcoming IBO cruiserweight title fight between Danny Green and Antonio Tarver, which takes place on July 20 in Sydney, Australia. Ironically, both Green and Tarver have knockout victories over Jones. Green stopped Jones in the first round of their 2009 encounter, and Tarver gave Jones his first knockout loss with a two round TKO in 2004.

[QUOTE=giacomino;10579676]I agree, which is why he should target Huck for a rematch rather than spend his time beating up 40-something has-beens. Leave Green to his oldie's tour[/QUOTE] thats advice any doctor woud give him for his safety

[QUOTE=giacomino;10579275]Wish he'd target Huck or Cunningham or Hernandez. I guess beating up old-timers is more lucrative, but I'd rather see him fight people closer to his age[/QUOTE] He just fought Huck and got robbed.
